The Selfless


As someone who holds honor and commitment in the deepest regard, I simply do not have the words to express the level of respect I have for the dedication of the medical professionals and volunteers who are caring for those infected with the Ebola virus. This promise to care for others through risk and personal sacrifice defines a moment of human greatness.

In honor of these medical professionals and volunteers, because I said I would has made a $5,000 donation to Doctors Without Borders, a nonprofit organization providing frontline aid to Ebola patients and others around the world. We hope this unrestricted funding provides them with the equipment and supplies needed for their commitment.

As the Founder of because I said I would, I humbly ask you to join our donation. We have set a goal to raise $15,000. Zero percent of these funds will be given to because I said I would; this is for them. Click this link to donate and please share the link through social media:

Total cases of Ebola infections have risen by 52.9% since we started this campaign 23 days ago. Over 240 medical professionals have already died to save the innocent from this disease. Will you join us in honoring their sacrifice?

Our campaign ends in 8 days on November 22nd. Fight the good fight.
